    I'd prefer that you start with the ones who like taking a dump on my truck as soon as I walk inside from washing it

    Would love to have a 3 day flying white rat hunt annually here in Michigan. Any sea gull more than 5 miles inland from the sea (Here in Michigan that would be any great lake or connecting body of water would be fair game. No bag limit.

    They are called flying opossiums down here in the south.

    All they do is fly in , make a lot of noise, eat, crap all over the place and then leave as thought they accomplished something.

    You know, just like the CEO...etc of most companies.

    When they fly over toss them an alka-celcer tab and see what happens next.

    Since I am way too far inland, no sea gulls to observe. What happens next?

    That's easy, Charlie.

    Take a shotgun in one hand and an oar in the other. Walk towards the sea. Stop when someone asks you why you are carrying an oar. Toss out some crumpled McDonald's bags and load up.

    The shooting will start soon.

    Can we add Cormorants to the list too?

    The Alka Seltzer thing works! Because birds cannot pass gas easily, either up or down, the Alka Seltzer causes a rapid build up of gas in their system. Since it has no easy way out, they sort of pop! They will take a tablet and fly off with it. Keep watching, because in a little bit, they kind of "poof up" and nose dive in like a fighter plane with a bad hit.

    when we were young boys-in the spring during field work, the seagulls wud migrate through iowa and feed behind the implements-- my buddies and i wud shoot straight up @ them w/ .22 rifles-- we hit one and it spiraled down slowly and landed in the hog lot, the evidance was "gone" in minutes---its funny how we thot the game warden was watching that very spot!!!!!

    And when they fly directly over your head when you are on the tractor, DO NOT grab them by the feet, thier beaks are sharp as hell, don't bother asking me how I know.

    seagulls are protected. They do eat a lot of garbage that would foul our beaches.

    Before you launch into a Sea Gull shoot, better check with your State laws. They are a protected bird in a lot of States. Quite a healthy fine for shooting/harming one, or so I've heard.

    If you shoot one seagull, when he goes down, it will attract a bunch more. The are curious to see what happened to their buddy, or what he went after. I saw it happen one time, abour 40 years ago. Charlie

    Sprinkler man, where you on the same boat as I was? Maybe it was drunk, I believe we had over a hundred alka seltzers tablets with us. Nah! I must have been totally wasted. Couldn't have happened. That would be illegal.
